and federal exchanges through the first month obamacare. one fifth of what the officials had projected before the launch of health care dog of and the opening of exchanges accnted for only 27,000 of successful in moments, 80,000 of them originated in state-run insurance exchanges and secretary kathleen sibelius revealed below numbers and then open herself and the administration up to ridicule consistent with what maschuses, a state of only 6.5 million residents, experienced an initial rollout of romney care. not revealing the number of people that paid for the plan and she did not explain why the obama administration will withhold those numbers from the public until december 15. >> the numbers are consistent with the numbers that massachusetts reported and that we feel are the most accurate by the 15th of december and we will be able to tell you how many people have paid for this coverage. lou: or disturbing numbers. 55% say they believe the obama administration tried to deceive them about obamacare. compared to only 30% many say we need to throw obamacare out and begin again and 42% say keep
: thank you, mr. speaker. mr. speaker, since obamacare implementation began on october 1, the president has spent much f his time talking about the malfunctioning website. however, i would remind the president of his own words several weeks ago. obamacare is more than just a website. the website was supposed to be the easy part. and the more people sign on to it, they will be made aware of the real problems with obamacare. in fact, when the millions of americans currently losing their health care plans try to log on will be care.gov, they met with drastically increased emiums, skyrocketing out-of-pocket cost, and reduced access to the doctors and hospitals they know. these problems are in direct contrast to the repeated promises made by the president. my constituents are rightly concerned with these broken promises and they are regularly contacting me and my office to voice their concerns. for instance, gillian in sparta, tennessee, wrote to me, and i quote, every year in the past my health care insurance has increased by small percentages. sometimes 5%, sometimes by 7%. this past week
jobs and the economy. the two are undeniably linked. obamacare, its unfunded mandates, broken policy incentives and tax penalty structure is exacerbating the crisis of unemployment in this country. my constituent, sandy from winston-salem, knows this firsthand. she contacted me to share how obamacare is impacting adjunct professors in north carolina community colleges. she said, our hours have been cut because of the unaffordable health care act. this legislation is the worst thing that could have happened to the average american. her story isn't unique. stories abound of community colleges working to figure out how they will manage to comply with obamacare's costly employer mandate. for some it means cutting part-time employee hours which shortchanges both workers and students. americans care about health care and they care about jobs. obamacare is the wrong solution for both. i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: for what purpose does the gentleman from texas seek recognition? mr. poe: i ask unanimous consent to address the house for one minute and to revise and extend my remarks.
stopped the enforcement of mandatory sentencing and parts of obamacare. the benghazi issue. the irs issue. how many more things you think have to occur, thinking that a prosecutor, one of those is not enough evidence. two of those, in and of themselves, is not enough evidence. the violations that i see and have just listed, i think, is enough evidence to ask questions . where do you draw the lines and what i have recited as enough evidence to start asking questions about the president >> first ofs power? all, congressman, i cannot address all of the -- all of the -- the things that you have raised. many of those things, let's be honest about it, are honest disagreements about policy or how to interpret the law. but your interpretation of the law is -- you are saying that you do not agree with how i interpret the law and you say i am wrong. sentence,sh my raising the specter of some kind of grotesque residential authority,f unwanted it is not based on fact. mr. cantor believed that his interpretation of the law would sink obamacare, in his view, is correct. or, i guess he does. the preside
with president obama blank suspension of obamacare. of course i agree with mr. lazarus. they are not the same as obamacare. but what is striking about the comparison is that president lincoln welcomed the involvement of congress. welcome to the congress to ratify what he had done to pass the statute justify eating. he was concerned that they had overstepped the constitutional authority and welcom welcomed cs ratification of its action. president obama by contrast actually threatened to veto the statute that would have ratified his action. in fact i think is a startling contrast i was trying to bring out in that op-ed. .. they have offered despite two years of people like me raising this issue with the irs is trying to do is illegal. they have yet to offer one shred of, when statutory provision or one shred of evidence that supports their claim that the statute authorizes tax credit through exchanges of established by the federal government under section 1321 or that it was congresses intent for the statute to authorize tax credit through those exchanges. so there's a lot more to be said about

on the obamacare rollout. the obama administration, the troubled health care website a vastly improved since the disastrous rollout back in october. so much so that it appears that the website may have reached its maximum capacity. now, the former head of the massachusetts health exchange. great to have you back on the show. welcome. >> thank you. nice to be here. lori: health and human services is saying that they are running 90% of the time. does that mean anyone can log on and expect to sign up in a reasonable time? >> well, apparently not. it would be nice to have it running close to 100 percent. >> describe the kern vulnerabilities. >> they have done a heroic effort over the last five or six weeks in marshalling resources to try to improve what was clearly not functioning very well at all. really not functioning. but you would like to get those -- the consumer experience will depend upon all of the links in the process working. working close to 100 percent. that is really what you would like to see. and you know, that is just the basics, frankly. the really interesting stuff is down the

counted because we had a $500 billion of savings out of medicare that is going to go to obamacare and of course we were strengthening medicare by $500 billion. having that as a part of the record, how can we say that medicare has strengthened? is medicare now stronger than it has ever been? >> i don't bb of the trust fund reveals anything about the future solvency of medicare. the facts on the ground are that in recent years the gap between the premiums into payroll taxes going in is $300 billion. >> that is a cash flow deficit. we get 10,000 beneficiaries every day and the absence of general reform that allow people to get the care that they need and deserve and abby slover cost growth it will fall under its own financial weight. >> for the secretary to affirm, $500 billion that isn't really chump change in the big picture of health care costs. i am getting comments from constituents in the district who medicare advantage folks now their benefits are being reduced. they are losing access to their preferred physicians. this is under the current system now. my question is how much
insurance cancellation notices. do you think medicare advantage may be obamacare's next victim? and if so, what might beneficiaries in pennsylvania expect over the coming years in terms of plan choices, costs, foregone benefit offerings and provider networks? >> thank you, mr. chairman. indeed, i am concerned about the future of medicare advantage. as i said in my opening statement. the work we've done on the implications of aca cuts, for example, in pennsylvania would suggest that in 2014 there would be an average loss of benefit for beneficiary of about $2200. that this is about a 19% reduction in those benefits. and that we would see a decline in the available of medicare that is to about 113,000 pennsylvanians. those numbers for 2014 are of concern, but i am more troubled by the trajectory over succeeding five years and the full cuts under the affordable care act as to whether medicare events were remain a viable option within the medicare program and deliver the comprehensive benefits. and i just want to echo the statements that we heard in many of the opening remarks. the medicare p
that is a treasure-trove for cybercriminals and identity thieves. further, the obamacare website interacts with the i.r.s. and social security administration databases thereby exposing americans to even greater risk of theft of their most private personal information. in their written testimony, these experts warn the following about the health care.gov website. quote, there are clear indicators that even basic security was not, not built into the healthcare.gov website, end quote. quote, the vast amount of healthcare.gov code also means asupplying industry standards, security practices is a task that can have no real chance of success. end quote. healthcare.gov, quote, creates massive opportunity for fraud, scams, deceptive trade practices, identity theft, and more, end quote. mr. speaker, these threats to american family finances prompted me to ask the panel of cybersecurity experts within, under obamacare, americans can seek compensation from the federal government for financial losses caused by use of healthcare.gov. in reply not one expert, not one indicated obamacare requires the federal govern
on the minds of america right now, as they witness the utter disaster of a rollout of obamacare. as the gentleman knows, his constituents as well as mine, are faced with higher premiums, faced with the realization now that the president has broken a major promise. when he had said to the american people that they could keep their health care plans if they liked it. and we know now that wasn't true. so people are having to go and figure out what kind of plans are actually there for them. the administration has claimed this week the website is working just fine. we know good and well the back end of that website is not working just fine. i'm glad that people are able, maybe, to get on and see what's there. we don't really know because of the lack of transparency as to how successful the signups and enrollments are being. we do know, though, that most americans in the individual plan arena are facing higher premiums . those that have had to give up their plans are facing higher premiums, and plans that they don't necessarily choose that they are now forced to have because of the op
the plants. back in 2010, cbs chief actuary did a report on the impact of obamacare to medicare advantage. he wrote and i quote we estimate that in 2017 -- i know you touched on this, but elaborate, please. we estimate that in 2017 when the m.a. provisions will be fully phased in enrollment in medicare advantage plans will be lower i about 50%, does this track with your own analysis of these cuts of? >> apps alluded. as you for today medicare advantage is a high quality program, very popular. even more popular nationwide. the senior population is rising 10,000 beneficiaries every day. one would expect that if nothing else changed you would see more enrollment, a lot more. we are going to see less. what's changed is a financial foundation, the cuts under a maple make it impossible for plans to survive and those that survive will have to change the networks and their benefits and the cost-sharing in ways that seniors will find under struggle. the net result will be less availability of medicare advantage. >> next question for you. some democrats have been pushing the accountable care organizati
in terms of growing government is causing all this anguish. this is coupled with obamacare, which is a total nightmare. i premium has gone up. this is ridiculous. what is usually created is the new underclass, the educated poor. the man does not care about free enterprise. wants government in charge of everything. it is a different philosophy than a republican would have. that if romney were elected, we would be coming out of this by now. with all this government regulation and the government goes -- the government knows best and comes first, as sky has never worked hard. arrogant,most polarizing, racist president we have ever had. the only people making excuses for him are the morally weak and politically correct liberal white apologists and the plaque -- and the black racists in the name of political correctness. everyone else is realistic enough to see the frog has dissipated and this guy is a total fraud. he will go down as one of the worst presidents this country has ever had. he does not care about the pain the americans are going through. >> joe from new york, good morning.
